Weekly Driving Tip Recap

Hello Everyone,

Here is a brief recap of the weekly driving tips for the past few weeks. If you have interest or questions about any of these you can find more detailed information about each driving tip further below:


1. CHECK YOUR EXPIRATION DATES for inspection stickers and registrations. An unwanted stop for expired inspections and registrations has led to many a DWI arrest.

2. CHECK THOSE PLATE LIGHTS AND BRAKE LIGHTS: You can be driving perfectly lawfully and not know your rear plate lights are out until you see the unwanted spectre of flashing blue lights in your rear view mirror. Check these frequesntly!

3. PRACTICE RETRIEVING YOUR LICENSE AND REGISTRATION BEFORE YOUR ARE "UNDER PRESSURE": A little practice on this task can make a big difference in your DWI case. Hopefully you won't drink and drive. If an officer smells any alcohol on you, however, or thinks he does, he'll be watching for any delays or fumbling when you produce your license and registration. Practice producing these items until you can dio so smoothly.

4. BE POLITE: Politeness is better than a bad attitude during a traffic stop. It certainly doesn't mean you need to do any testing at the roadside, but a courteous, "no" to a request for field sobriety testing will serve you better than a vulgar refusal.

Have a safe week,
